Strojna is a village of solitary farms. Above the core with the church of St. Ulrich (sv. Urh) stands the great Janež Homestead, a real settlement of various buildings. The older part of the homestead was built in the 17th and 18th centuries on the levelled-off area below the road.
The main buildings are a residence house, a stable, two granaries and a workshop. All the buildings are made of wood and covered with shingles. Only the residence house has a built stone basement part. Together with the irregular frontage by the path, it forms a floor plan in the shape of the letter L. The present house is comprised of two older buildings: by the "black" kitchen and two residence areas, a former independent granary was added on. The unified building was put together with a wide promenade balcony and a wide projecting roof. The nucleus of the building is comprised of three compartments. In the middle there is a built and vaulted "black" kitchen with two hearths for stoves in both rooms by the sides. Opposite the room in the lengthening piece there is a bedroom arranged, formerly an area with a chimney stove. Experts have also highly valued a farm building with a floor plan in the letter T and a wide trail.
The large estate is distinguished for its position, careful partitioning, thoughtful construction and artistic solutions and details, the fruits of tradition and transmission of knowledge from the end of the 17th to the 20th century. Visits should be arranged with the owner in advance.
